Gov. Mike Beebe and Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long were on hand for a celebration Thursday of War Memorial Stadium’s renovation.
The stadium has added a new, $7.3 million press box and club facility on its west side. The structure contains two floors of suites and club seating for 582, an increase from 220 in the past. The expanded press box includes a covered deck on its roof for still and video photographers.
The Razorbacks will play at the stadium twice this season, including Sept. 11 against Louisiana-Monroe. Arkansas agreed a couple years ago to keep playing games at the stadium through 2016. Long says he hasn’t really started looking beyond that, but that any improvements to the facility benefit the Arkansas program.
